UK & IRELAND PREMIERE: Broadchurch Series 2 Finale Tonight
As Broadchurch concludes tonight, will we find the answers we're all looking for?
Earlier in the series, as Hardy and Miller continued their unofficial investigation into the Sandbrook case, new information forced them to re-evaluate what they believed, and Ellie later found herself exposed and alone. Now, the mystery drama reaches a dramatic conclusion, and after all the twists and turns, the truth is finally revealed - changing lives for ever.
The second series of Broadchurch concludes in the UK and Ireland tonight on ITV at 9pm for those in the UK and on TV3 at 10pm for those in Ireland.

Drama Of The Week - Broadchurch
And so it ends as it began, on the beach beneath those glowing cliffs as a small wounded community quietly closes in upon itself once more. We have the verdict in the trial of Joe Miller for the murder of young Danny Latimer, and now inevitably lives must move along. Though nothing can be the same for bereaved Mark and Beth Latimer, who wanted justice for their boy, and were torn to pieces in court.
But most of the final episode is devoted to what happened in Sandbrook, the murder of a little girl and disappearance of a young woman, the broken case that nearly destroyed detective Alec Hardy. He's lucky to have such a doughty friend as Ellie Miller; when she says, "Something's bugging me," as she examines the files, we know we're in safe hands.
So is it a good ending? Yes, I think so - harrowing and satisfying in its way with a heart that beats long after the final credits.
